For Tucson Hownds (Eegee's)

We had one of these in the 80's in Glendale and I remember loving their food and especially their slushes. Are they still the same great subs and slushes? Been thinking of a road trip and making a stop. Is it worth my time?

  1. Oh, man do I miss Eegee's. Especially this time of year when it's so hot out. I would absolutely make a stop if you get the chance. My favorite flavor was black raspberry. I only saw it once, but it had big, whole pieces of fruit mixed throughout.

    1. The last time I had Eegee's was in 2000 when we went down for my brother's graudation. Believe it or not there used to be one in the area of Cactus & Cave Creek where the new Carolina's is. I can't believe I remember that.

      Is there a website?

      2. Yes, they're still good!

        BTW: there's a new Carvel's near the Albertson's on Speedway and Silverbell. Great ice cream.

        1. Here's the other not-so-secret benefit of Eegee's

          1. I'd do it as part of a Tucson chow tour. There have been times that driving two hours for a really big eegee have been tempting, though.
